“Perfect spot for snorkeling”
Reviewed 27 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We enjoy snorkeling, like our privacy, want to prepare our own meals, and want the convenience of easy access to town...this condo hits all of those.

The condo has easy access to a five-minute kayak trip (kayak provided by the property) to some of the best snorkeling on the island. We snorkeled at least once every day...nothing better than coming out of the ocean and taking a dip in the pool steps from your private patio.

The condo is near the end of the beach in West End, so there is very little traffic...very few interruptions by people offering massages or hair beading...generally private and quiet. You are a short walk to West End for easy access to small grocery stores, gift shops, and restaurants.

Beware, there is a bit of a double-edged sword here...on the days that there are no cruise ships in town, many of the restaurants do not even open...and on the days that there are cruise ships in town...the village can be packed. I recommend you get a copy of the cruise ship schedule and plan your activities accordingly. Activities that are very “cruise friendly”, plan for non-cruise days or make sure you have a reservation.

The condo offers two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen that is generally well equipped, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV, Wi-Fi...everything you will need. They even leave a local cell phone in the condo with some free air time, in the event you need to make a local call.

The condition of the condo is satisfactory...could use a little updating and upgrading...at the price point, maybe nicer towels and linens should be provided...perhaps the kitchen could be a little cleaner...the bathroom a bit updated…everything was functional…it is only a week out of your life, and the most important thing is the location and accessibility. The location is perfect.

On the down side…I do enjoy grilling...we usually fish and then grill our catch...while there is a grill at the complex...and it does work...that is the best I can say about it. The owners really ought to be embarrassed by the grill. Spend $300 and replace it now.

There is a caretaker on site, as well as after hours security…both plusses and very responsive. At the end of our stay, a representative from the management company came by to do a check out interview…we shared all of this with him…so it seems they are interested and concerned about our feedback…now to see if they take action.

The location is perfect, the property management company responsive, the accommodations are adequate…overall value, above average.

Thank you for taking the time to post this review, it's valuable information for us, the property managers, and the owner. We do take negative comments seriously and we do take action! We are already in contact with the 6 villa owners re the BBQ, they are deciding whether it's time to have individual ones or replace the common one, so your comment is perfect timing!
I will address your kitchen comment with houseeeping. We do share these reviews with the owner and I would like to private message you for further feedback on your thoughts on 'updating' , decor or new furnishings?
West End does for sure get busy during cruise ship days, a big reason why the villas are so popular. Some restaurants tend to use an 'off day' to close, typically Monday, a couple even choose to close Friday & Saturday, so yes, typically non cruise ship, and less busy days . There are so many restaurant options in West End though I am quite surprised you found many closed & this an inconvenience
We hope to see you on a future trip

“Perfect Spot for Snorkeling!”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

It was our first time to Roatan and hopefully not our last. We loved the location for walking into town, walking the beach, and snorkeling and kayaking. The property was clean and nicely furnished with a decent pool for cooling off. Don’t forget your bug spray and be sure to try the local street food as well as the restaurants. A trip worth repeating!

“Amazing condo on an Amazing Island”
Reviewed 17 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Condo was so nice. Well made concrete building (can't hear the neighbors) that was very well furnished. The condo was a great size, with very nice comfortable furniture. The king sized bed in the master bed room was very comfortable. Nice TVs with bluray player.
Very nice patio with a breath taking view with a nice hard wood table to enjoy the breeze and breakfast and view.
The grounds were clean, the maintenance man, Eldin, was very helpful and spoke pretty good English.
The most under talked about aspect of the condo was the how UNBELIEVABLY good the snorkeling was right in front of the condo, a spot called Blue Channel, literally one of the best spots on the island and it is right out front.
The kitchen was first class, very nice refrigerator (with an ice maker, which is a must for mixed drinks), the range, microwave, and dishwasher were all very good quality newer models that worked great. The kitchen was also really well stocked as far as glasses, plates, pots, tools etc.
The AC was nice and cold and the internet was surprisingly fast.
The location of the condo was perfect, a very short walk to all the shops/resturants/bars, but on the west edge of West End, so very little foot traffic in front of the condo, and pretty much never even hear a car. Also the sunsets were drop dead perfect.
Everyone was very helpful, informative, and nice.
The only complaint that we had, was that we could not stay longer.
Recommendations:
Restaurant Oasis (all the food), The Thai Place (lobster PadThai), Vintage Pearls (its at Bananarama and the Sunday Brunch is awesome), Ziplining in the jungle, Snorkeling (get someone to take you to some of the shipwrecks), Chestnuts Gourmet Coffee (very good locally grown and roasted).
